Abstract

Invited for this month′s cover is the group of Dr. Knut Rurack. The cover picture shows a bright fluorescent dye (green halo) containing a high number of fluorine atoms (blue) for the assessment of reactive amino groups on a glass surface by two complementary surface analytical techniques. For more details, see the Full Paper on p. 25 ff.
